Kimi-Matias Räikkönen is a Finnish racing driver.

After nine seasons racing in Formula One, in which he won the 2007 Formula One World Drivers' Championship, he competed in the World Rally Championship in 2010 and 2011.

In 2012, he returned to Formula One, driving for Lotus and continued to drive for Lotus in 2013.

On September 11, 2013, Ferrari announced their signing of Räikkönen on a two year contract, beginning in the 2014 season.

Räikkönen entered Formula One as a regular driver for Sauber-Petronas in 2001.

Having previously only raced in very junior open-wheel categories, he was given his Super Licence from the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile after a performance delivery promise by his team boss, Peter Sauber.

He joined McLaren Mercedes in 2002, and became a title contender by finishing runner-up in the 2003 and 2005 championships to Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso, respectively.

Räikkönen's 2004 and 2006 seasons were plagued by severe unreliability from his McLaren cars.

Räikkönen switched to Ferrari in 2007, becoming the highest paid driver in motor sport with an estimated wage of $51 million per year.
